Faculty Associates

The Ryan Center Faculty Associates are members of the faculty of Villanova University whose scholarly work is related to the mission of the Ryan Center and who support the Ryan Center’s goals of promoting inquiry into the principles and processes of free government and advancing understanding of the responsibilities of statesmen and citizens of constitutional democratic societies. Because they share James Madison’s belief that only a well-instructed people can be permanently free, the Ryan Center Faculty Associates hold that it is part of their responsibility as scholars and teachers to foster in society generally and in their students in particular an appreciation of the moral, political, legal, and philosophical foundations of democratic government.
